Academy Soccer

The Stillwater Soccer Club Academy is committed to providing quality coaching and training for our young players. Our focus is on nurturing their soccer skills and techniques while gradually introducing team play concepts. Seasoned in both soccer education and youth development, our coaching staff emphasizes technical skills and tactical awareness in a balanced approach.

We aim to foster a learning environment where players can grow at their own pace. This involves focused training combined with encouragement for personal creativity and expression on the field. The SSC Academy approach is centered on building a solid foundation in soccer fundamentals, ensuring each player enjoys and succeeds in the game.

ACADEMY TRYOUTS WILL BE HELD ON AUGUST 26TH AND AUGUST 27TH Additional information will be conveyed as we approach that week.

Structure

The Academy program caters to girls and boys born in 2015.

Tryouts are conducted in both the Fall and Spring seasons and the placement is valid for only that season.  In other words, if you make the Academy team in Fall, you would be expected to attend and tryout again in the Spring.

The Academy team does not participate in a ‘league’   We will find at least 2 tournaments per season and will make our best effort to schedule ‘friendlies’ with other clubs.   We travel to other locations where the tournaments are held (Tulsa, OKC, Wichita, etc).

Academy Teams often engage in a Winter Session at Soccer City OKC and may participate in a Summer Session at Soccer City OKC or in 3v3 tournaments.  A parent volunteer is used to run these sessions.

Practice sessions for Academy Teams are held twice a week.

Financial

The total fee for the Academy program is $245.  Your registration fee contributes to essential aspects of the overall SSC program. This includes individual coaches stipends, player insurance, uniforms, and maintenance of our facilities.

To be eligible for Academy,

  1. Players must first enroll in Recreational Soccer, which is $95.
  2. Then email sscyouthcommissioner@gmail.com to let them know your players name and that they are interested in attending Academy Tryouts.

If you are accepted into the program you will then be charged the remainder of the balance ($150).  Please note that additional costs for tournaments and indoor leagues are managed by each team separately from the registration fee.
